T.P.Pratap-author of the post Organisations, be they established centuries old global MNCs or bootstrapped startups are always on the lookout for ways and means to spread their buzz among the teeming hundreds and millions.A Decorative Paints company would want to reach out and market its latest variant and products from across its wide portfolio such as Oil Bound Distemper or Plastic Emulsion to its end consumers or even influencers like painters, builders and architects.
